Bill Syken Golf Blog in SI.Com--What the $%#@& are you saying?
So Bill Syken, who now writes something called the Daily Blog for SI.Com, is the new master of the counter-trap? Actually, since I never played football, I have no idea what that is. How about the misdirection play?
Syken lists three reasons why Tiger is starting to show his human side: The goat, the split, and the bod. The goatee is cool, always has been, always will be. Splitting early from Baltusrol was OK. Just showed that he was on a different plane (double-entendre, get it?) than the rest of the hopeful -2 guys. The bod? Well, I haven’t seen the commercial, but if TO can show off his pecs, why not Tiger? No one wants to see the MBs of Colin, Phil, and Long John, but golf is about fitness these days, and MBs or not, each of these guys has taken notice of El Tigre and stepped up his commitment to the bod. Bill, do you have a watch? No way is Tiger walking around in “nothing but a towel” for half the ad! More like ten percent.
The real $%#@& with this blog is the closer: “Tiger wants to be the greatest. It’s time he start acting like it.” Which way do you mean, Syken? That this neo-young Tiger is doing it the right way, or the wrong way? That he should continue to be stiff, or continue to loosen up? Way to leave us hanging, bro. Most of the greatest players of sport were guarded to the point of closeted. Only a rare few let us know what truly makes them tick. Let’s hope that Tiger opens up his Tag Heuer as he passes the big 3-0.
Too bad they don’t let readers comment, like this sweet blog site does.
